Pear Almond Tart Recipe

This Pear Almond Tart Recipe uses either fresh pears or canned pears!  I love that because that means I can make it any time of year using canned pears and it tastes just as good.

I made this last year for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit with everyone! While this recipe has a lot of steps, if you enjoy baking give this one a try!
